Feature Friday -- Thumbuddy to Love -- The Binky Fairy (Review)

This past Monday, I interviewed Andrea Van Ness, the owner of Thumbuddy to Love.  If you missed my interview with her, click here to read it now. Today, I wanted to share more information on her three products available, which will help wean your child off of their pacifier/binky and stop them from sucking their thumbs.  Through her kits seen below, Andrea provides a fun way to teach your child through an illustrated storybook and puppet that these habits can be broken.  And, both child and parent can track progress through a success chart. 

I was sent the Binky Fairy kit to review, and have to say I love the cute little kit.  My daughter began relying on her pacifier in the evenings and during car rides, so I expect to have to break this habit as she gets a little bit older.  And, now, with the help of this fun kit, it will make this sometimes stressful process easier and more enjoyable for both parent and child.  Just look at the Binky Fairy above.  What child wouldn't want to play with this puppet and read along storybook, while working to give up their binky?  

I showed this kit to a few of my mommy meet up members and they had wished they had known about this kit, or that this kit was available years ago, when they spent months tirelessly trying to break the pacifier and/or thumb sucking habits in their children.  But, now that they know about this product, they will definitely be talking with other moms who are in the process of breaking these habits, and also give a few as gifts to struggling moms, helping to make their lives and this process easier for everyone.

Hats off to you, Andrea for creating a product that is much needed by parents, and is welcomed with open arms by children!!!!
